September in London: Top Eight Things to Do for Couples

2 September 2012 No Comment

With the biggest sporting event in recent years having come to a close, September would be a perfect time to venture to the capital without fighting the hoards on the Underground. You can find bargains on London hotels online to ensure a perfect weekend away with your loved one. Whether it’s an anniversary, a birthday treat or an off-the-cusp mini-vacation, London is full of perfect things to do with your other half, no matter what your budget.

8. Speedboat on the Thames
For the thrill seekers amongst you, a high octane ride along the Thames would be a perfect day out for you both. Take in the sights between the London Eye and Canary Wharf whilst feeling the wind in your hair. Take the river by storm and cruise in style, whizzing at up to 35 knots, this activity is perfect for any adrenaline junkies. Whatever the reason for a treat, you and your partner will be sure to enjoy this rip-roaring experience.

7. Ghost Walks
Not for everyone, but definitely for those up for delving into the macabre. Stay close to your loved one on this trip from St Paul’s tube station as it takes you on a tour of all the local haunts. The London Horror Tour includes some of the most haunted pubs and spooky churches that London has to offer and is definitely not for the faint hearted.

6. Helicopter Ride
Unless you have an intense fear of heights, there’s no other mode of transport that is more fun to experience the whole of London. Take a Birdseye view of the London Eye and surrounding landmarks. Perhaps take your relationship to the next stage – a proposal mid-air would be one never to forget!

5. Greyhound Racing
Up the ante and have a day at the races. Analyse the odds and have a flutter, you never know, your weekend break may win big cash prizes!

4. Champagne
A bottle of fizz is a perfect addition to any romantic getaway, but how about sampling some of the bubbly on the world’s longest champagne bar? Situated in St Pancras station, this fabulous bar offers 17 styles of champers, all available by the glass.

3. Chocolate Tours
More than likely appealing more to the lady in the relationship, a chocolate tour of London can satisfy any chocoholic. Indulge yourself in Knightsbridge and Chelsea – full day and evening tours are available for you to sample chocolates of all variety. Warm your cockles with a mug of cocoa and enjoy a fabulous day together.

2. Afternoon Tea
A quintessentially British outing, afternoon tea at the Ritz is definitely something to be tried if you’re visiting London. Be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment and ensure your table in this decadent London venue.

1. Luxury Dining
We all know that, no matter how many adrenaline-filled or culture-packed activities our itineraries are packed with, there’s nothing like a slap up meal to finish the weekend off. Providing the cherry for the very satisfying cake, an exquisite dinner at Gordon Ramsay’s 3 Michelin starred Royal Hospital Road would be much appreciated by both you and your partner. Add some luxury to your mini-break before retiring to your hotel for the night.
